Women on Bikes Workshop
Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 1:00pm to Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 2:00pm

The purpose of the event is to empower and encourage women to choose the bicycle as a means of transportation by providing useful safety, technical, and legal tips. Women bicycle at lower rates than men and this workshop seeks to address some of the issues that contribute to lower ridership and to provide a forum for community building among women who already bicycle and women who are interested in bicycling. We will also offer trip planning assistance as requested.

This workshop is open to all PSU students, staff, and faculty who identify as female, a woman, or transgender and is part of the 2009 Bike to Campus Challenge.

The Bike to Campus Challenge is an annual month-long event promoting bicycling amongst students as a means of getting to and from PSU.  This event also seeks to draw attention to the health, environmental, and sustainability benefits of choosing the bicycle as a method of transportation, especially for short trips. These benefits, including carbon and pollutant reduction, will be calculated as part of the Bike to Campus Challenge to demonstrate what a powerful impact can be made by our altering our transportation choices.

Ride your bike to campus, then log your trips online at www.biketocampus.org! Got a long commute? Combine your bike ride with transit! These trips count, too!

When: Thursday, May 7th
Where: PSU Women's Resource Center - SW 10th at SW Montgomery St. (in the basement of Montgomery Hall)
